Plastic Pool Panel Repair/ Sealants

matt_sunwaysolarmatt_sunwaysolar Posts: 61Member
Curious if anyone has any experience or recommendations on any sealants or compounds to seal/ repair plastic pool panel leaks. Manufacturers typically provide plugs for leaks that occur in the riser tubes, but I've got a project that the plugs aren't holding under the pressure and they could use a little help.

Anyone have any experience or anything they use?

    Is it plastic or EPDM? If plastic,what type?

    Crimp fitting?

    Polypropylene.

    If it is under pressure, I think you will need to find a fitting to go over or into the tube.

    Any ideas from the manufacturer?

    There is basically nothing that sticks to PP -- which is a huge part of what makes it such a useful material. Fusion welding and gaskets are pretty much the only ways to effect a good seal.
